Have you ever thought of yourself as a character? I’ve never really had that image of myself. My husband is bald and bearded. Easy to describe. Hard not to notice.
I’ve just always thought of myself as a short (ish) girl with curly brown hair, but kind of average. No real style to speak of, just kind of a everyday jane who blends in to the crowd. Till last Saturday night. My old house, the BBH threw their yearly pre-Halloween party, and we were surprised with two of our friends coming as us!! There were doppelgangers at the party, and they did gang-busters at duplicating us as a couple. Like it was so crazy that Mick would go to talk to her thinking it was me, and then remember I was wearing a costume. She outdid her self. It was crazy, eerie and hilarious. See for yourself.
Have you ever had anyone go as YOU for Halloween? I doubt it.
I heart Halloween. Its the time of year that I put my best, craftiest foot forward and throw myself into costume making and decorating. If I lived in a larger house with less clutter, and maybe a few kids running around, it would be full of Halloween decor and goodies.
I’ve been thinking about my costume for a while now. A few years back I had a super successful Halloween costume that I made and went as a bag of skittles.
I didn’t know how to sew, barely handstitched, and was a master at my glue gun. Needless to say, that was a one season costume, as all the glue has pulled away and its filthy.
Now, with my sewing skills passable, I decided to go the candy route again…it worked well for me last time. Can you guess what I’m making?
